    He will probably be overpaid by somebody, but the offense will be worse without him. Perhaps that can be helped through the draft, but that then precludes the team from addressing another area.

    i bet the offense finishes better in 2013 season without wallace than they did last year with............

    Al Davis still lives!!

    If only it were that easy.
    Wallace himself was a little known player when we draft him. He went in the 3rd round - not like he was a top 10 pick or something.

    Good analogy.

    Let's hope so. If they do, it will probably because the OL finds a way to overcome that injury bug they had last year. Of course, they still need to find a RB and a TE as well, so I wouldn't bet too much.

    Wallace is a weapon. He can be a very effective one. The Steelers will just have to find a way with different weapons.

    completely false and moronic statement from the anti wallace crowd.

    it has been said many times that wallaces speed forces safety help over the top.

    You have zero credibility. You are a Wallace apologist and are backed into the corner by defending him and you don't have the strength to admit you were wrong all along on this.

    If ALL Wallace did was catch deep passes, some of these arguments might have some merit.

    But he doesn't just catch deep passes. He catches short, he catches medium. He just is very, very good at catching deep passes.

    Everyone can have their own very valid reasons for liking or disliking Wallace, but there are facts, and there is fiction. He has more yards, more TD's, more splash plays than any other WR the Steelers have had in the last 4 years.

    He won't be 'easy' to replace, the offense isn't automatically upgraded by moving Sanders into the starting line-up. To think so is to let your dislike of Wallace to cloud your judgement.
